"❤️️❤️️❤️️," Brady captioned the image.

Brady first revealed earlier this year that he adopted the two kittens in an Instagram post. In the post, Brady suggested that daughter Vivian was the mastermind behind the kittens' adoption.

"Vivi wins again," the newly retired NFL quarterback shared at the time.

Brady thanked his former Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate Logan Ryan and Logan's wife, Ashley Bragg Ryan, for their involvement with the adoption in another post. "This is what my mornings are like now," he said.

The football star also tagged the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, the felines' former shelter, letting the Florida facility know the cats "are in good loving hands." Brady and Vivian volunteered at the shelter throughout the athlete's final NFL season, Ashley previously revealed.

Brady and Bündchen finalized their divorce in November after a period of separation. After the divorce was final, a source told PEOPLE that they "agreed to joint custody of the kids," as Bradyremained in Tampa and Bündchen lives about four hours away in Miami, where her ex-husband also has a residence.
